A dark, modern, romantic retelling of the musical classic, Phantom of the Opera.
But this time, the man behind the mask won’t stop until she is his.

She is my muse, and I am her demon of music.

A year ago, I witnessed sweet Scarlett Day’s dark side. She’s been my obsession ever since.

I was content with being her secret. Content with protecting her from afar.

Until an enemy from my past sets his sights on her. Our families have a deep history of hatred, and Scarlett is caught in the middle.

Meanwhile, her mind plays tricks on her. When a panic attack goes horribly wrong, I emerge from the shadows to save her.

Now that she’s mine, I can’t let her go.

I’ve mastered the darkness. She tempts me with her light.

But when my mask is gone, will she fear the monster underneath?

PHANTOM is a spicy, complete standalone with a guaranteed HEA.

My Review
I have seen several different movie versions of The Phantom of the Opera as I did like this story. Retelling of stories has become really popular again recently. Yet, this is the first retelling that I can recall reading. I really enjoyed this dark, steamy version of this story.

Sol and Scarlett are great together. I could feel the passion between them. Which as a dark romance reader I was here for it all. Scarlett may call Sol her "demon", but he is also her "savior". Scarlett does deal with mental health issues. In today's society I think it is great that characters are shown dealing with this as it is no longer a taboo subject, but I just wish that it was not shown as so much of a weakness. Luckily, Sol saw past this and loved Scarlett for who she is.

I am his muse, and his is mine.
My Phantom of the French Quarter.
My demon of music.
